Publisher's Description

In this follow up to A Table By the Window, Juliette D'Alisa continues searching for the full story about her grandmother's past and for her own chance at lasting love.  

Juliette feels on top of the world when her and her brother, Nico's restaurant opens to rave reviews. But that feeling is short-lasted, when in a bittersweet series of events, her mother falls ill and her romance with Memphis immunologist Neil McLaren ubruptly ends in anger and tears.

Three long months later, as autumn sweeps into the Pacific Northwest, Juliette feels that she’s finally on the cusp of equilibrium--the restaurant continues to thrive, and her family is closer than ever. She and sous-chef Adrien are seeing each other, both in and out of the kitchen. Just when she thinks her world might stop spinning, a trip to the waterfront brings a chance encounter with a familiar face from her past.

Rather than dwell on her personal life, Juliette throws herself into work and research. After reading her grandmother’s letters from war-torn Paris, she still wants to know the full story-- and she’ll travel across countries and oceans to find it. But even Juliette can’t outrun the man who stole her heart. As she finally uncovers the truth about her family history, what will it mean for her own search for love?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for A Table by the Window and Reservations for Two

"Juliette is beautiful, smart, talented, and comes from a rich culinary heritage. She’s also lost, confused, switching careers, and unlucky in love. A Table by the Window is a book for anyone who’s ever dreamed of owning a restaurant or becoming a chef or falling in love with a wonderful man. This is a story of hope and renewal, of love and understanding when it’s needed the most."
—Suzanne Woods Fisher, award-winning, best-selling author of the Inn at Eagle Hill series

"An endearing, smart, must-read novel! A Table by the Window is a delicious tale that had me slowing down so I could savor it longer. Major props to Hillary Manton Lodge not only for taking me on a beautiful journey alongside Juliette, but also for making a non-foodie like myself want to take up a new hobby." —Katie Ganshert, award-winning author of A Broken Kind of Beautiful and The Art of Losing Yourself

"Lodge has created yet another sumptuous story—full of intrigue, humanity, tantalizing tastes, and true love, in its myriad forms. She gracefully leads us into kitchens, restaurants, and hearts, not to mention sensorial visits to France, Italy, and the tensions of WWII Paris. Poised on a knife’s edge, Lodge left me yearning for her next story and for time in the kitchen to test some of her tempting recipes."—Katherine Reay, author of Dear Mr. Knightley and Lizzy and Jane

"With a palate of rich characters, vibrant flavors, and vintage-inspired romance, Hillary Manton Lodge’s Reservations for Two is a feast for the senses. From the fragrant lavender fields of Provence to Tuscany’s golden hills, Lodge takes the reader on a journey that is about both discovery and coming home. It’s très chic and enchanting—a recipe of amour for the reader’s heart!" —Kristy Cambron, author of The Butterfly and the Violin and A Sparrow in Terezin

"Endearing, witty, delectable. Hillary Manton Lodge’s second installment in the Two Blue Doors series is as delicious as her first—even for a non-foodie like me! I especially appreciated the seamless transition from Juliette’s current life and travels to her grand-mère’s WWII past, a captivating angle that added the perfect hint of mystery." —Melissa Tagg, author of From the Start

"Food writer Juliette D’Alisa adores her temperamental trilingual family of restaurateurs, but she could do without their bossy skepticism of her online love interest who’s so unlike them. Rainy, windy Portland has never felt quite as warm as it does when Juliette navigates long-distance romance, career decisions, and a genealogical mystery. A delectable tale from Hillary Manton Lodge, A Table by the Window includes recipes that are like a warm welcome to the D’Alisa family table." —Meg Moseley, author of Gone South and When Sparrows Fall

    After ending her long-distance romance, opening a very successful restaurant with her brother, and mourning the passing of her mother, Juliette D'Alisa is still trying to find her grounding and adjust to her new life. She receives a shock when one day she sees her ex in Portland, miles away from his Tennessee roots. Their chance meeting resurrects both of their feelings. Confused, Juliette throws herself into continuing the research into her family's hidden past. Along the way, Juliette discovers who she is- and what she wants- as she uncovers her family's past and her own deep-seated love for Neil.

    First of all, this book was very different than any other book I have read. It is definitely geared toward foodies with lots of cooking lingo and references. I thought the recipes at the end of each chapter for a dish highlighted within the chapter was a nice touch (although all of the dishes were too fancy for this simple Southern cook). With that being said, since I am not a foodie, this part of the story was very boring to me. Second, the plot line with Neil and especially the family's past that Juliette had been researching was obviously a continuation from the first two books in the series. At times, I felt lost and as if I was "missing" part of the story. Once the drama with Neil was resolved and the journal was recovered at the family chateaux in France, the story picked up interest for me and was quite intriguing. Overall, not my thing subject-wise, but foodies will love it!

    This review contains my own thoughts and opinions. I have not been compensated by the author or publisher in any way.

    This review was written for #3: Together at the Table.
    What a genuinely lovely wrap-up to an amazing series. Be forewarned though that it's probably best to have read A Table at the Window and Reservations for Two before reading this last installment of Two Blue Doors. These three books have connected plots and characters and it just makes sense to get involved right from the very beginning.

    First off -- while I'm not a true foodie I've discovered I have a certain weakness for foodie fiction. There's something so delicious (pun intended) about the exotic food references. I might not understand a word I read when it comes to recipe descriptions but I love the flavour they bring to the story.(Okay, last pun, I promise.) And since Juliette's family is foodie obsessed (they all work in the food industry) and they are a crazy mix of French and Italian there is a lot of passionate chef talk going on. So much fun. The author even includes recipes that sound divine but look beginner friendly enough for me to try.

    As in the first two books, this one is told entirely from Juliette's witty point of view. There's even sardonic humour in the midst of tough times. And those are plentiful. I love a flawed heroine and Juliette is definitely that. She internalizes things too much, buries herself in her work and generally hides away from the harsh reality of her personal life. Luckily she has an opinionated family who aren't afraid to speak up. Exciting dynamics that left me alternately laughing hysterically or tearing my hair out.

    I don't want to say too much about the romance because...well...there's two guys and only one Juliette so no spoilers. I'll just say the best man really did win and I'm a happy camper who has to work at straightening her toes after they've been curled through all those swoony scenes. Blissful sigh.

    The intrigue in Juliette's family history is solved at last...a mystery that plagued me through the first two books. Immensely satisfying and well worth the wait. I might have cried a tear or two. An interesting World War II connection in this otherwise contemporary novel.

    And a side note: As with the first two books, there is a definite lack of inspirational thread in Together at the Table. Just a fleeting mention of church attendance. I really missed the personal growth that comes with a faith themed story.

    What an amazing wrap up to a great series. This book was fabulous, probably my favorite out of the whole series.

    It is divided into two parts. I will say at first, at the end of part I, I was like well, now what, a lot seemed resolved? But I totally get it now. Truly, it's like getting two books in one.

    Juliette starts the book with Adrian and I knew it felt all wrong. When she see's Neil my heart ached for them to get back together. I loved the way Hillary handled that.

    Then there is the mystery surrounding Juliette's grandmother. That was a beautiful story as well.

    I love Juliette's family, especially Caterina, what a great personality.

    There are recipes included with this book. So if what you read about sounds good you can cook it up.

    You probably could read this book without reading the others but I think I was more deeply invested in these characters because I had read the other two.

    The ending was totally perfect, a great way to wrap the series.

    A copy of this book was given to me through the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was written for #3: Together at the Table.
    "Together at the Table" is the third and final book in Hillary Manton Lodge's "Two Blue Doors" series. Lodge ended the trilogy beautifully.

    As this final book begins, Juliette D'Alisa is trying to move forward with life. In less than a year, she lost both her grandmother and her mother. She also broke up with the love of her life. She's found a new love, though, the sous-chef at the restaurant now inhabiting her grandmother's final home. Juliette and her brother Nico, with the help of family, friends, and staff have turned the restaurant into a successful one. Juliette is ready to resume her research, determined to solve the mystery of her grandmother's letters about what really happened to her family living near Paris in World War II.

    Of course, every chapter references food and most of these are accompanied by recipes for bold readers to try. And again, the story takes readers from Portland to Chicago to France. Readers who love to play tourist will want to visit these places once they finish the book.

    I enjoyed reading this series and thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers for sending this final installment in exchange for my honest review. I recommend it to fans of romance, history, recipes, and travel.

    This review was written for #3: Together at the Table.
    This is book # 3 of the Two Blue Doors Series. The book continues with Juiliette, her brother and Adrian running her mother's restaurant after her mother' death. Juliette and Adrian (sous-chef) are now a couple and making a life together. When Neil comes back into town for a few months, Juliette is shocked and needs to deal with the past. When Juliette finds some of her grandmothers letters from the past in Paris, the adventure begins.... What does Juilette do when she finds what the letters contain? Will she follow her heart or stay in her comfort zone?

    I would recommend this to those that have been reading the series, however; it can be read as a stand alone. It is a great conclusion to the story that has been building from all 3 books. I loved this and it also includes a few good recipes. This is a great summer read!
